Poster summary

Individuals suffering from limb absence frequently experience neurological phantom and residuum pain, as well as neuromusculoskeletal disfunctions susceptible to compromise their residuum health. Care providers have limited ways to diagnose these disfunctions, particularly when using the prosthesis during daily living. There is a need for wearable and non-invasive diagnostic devices that can assist care providers to better assess and maintain residuum health by establishing the pathophysiological cause-and-effect relationship between prosthetic care interventions and residuum neuromusculoskeletal dysfunctions. This study outlines opportunities and challenges to the development of the next generation of diagnostic devices. The specific objectives were to inform the identification, invention, and implementation phases of the Biodesign innovation process specific to diagnostic devices.
